Turkish military kills 20 Kurdish fighters in Hakkari, army says | Reuters

ANKARA The Turkish military killed 20 fighters from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) after they tried to attack army bases in the southeastern Hakkari province, the military said on Saturday.The fighters crossed into Turkey from northern Iraq and attempted to launch attacks on military bases in the mountainous border region, the military said, without giving further details.Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast has been rocked by violence since a 2-1/2 year ceasefire between the government and the PKK broke down in July last year. The PKK, which is designated as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the European Union and the United States, first took up arms in 1984. More than 40,000 people, most of them Kurds, have died in the fighting since. #India #Business #Middle East #Argentina #military #european

Venezuela decries Mercosur 'coup' after trade bloc suspension | Reuters

BUENOS AIRES/BRASILIA An increasingly isolated Venezuela accused the Mercosur trade bloc of staging a "coup" on Friday after member nations suspended the socialist nation for failing to fulfil membership requirements.In an official letter addressed to Venezuela's Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez and seen by Reuters, Mercosur informed Venezuela of "the cessation of the exercise of the rights inhered to a member state as of this date."Following a decade in which strong growth and leftist policies across South America led the bloc to embrace Venezuela, the suspension now underscores the ideological split in a region struggling with plummeting commodity prices and enfeebled economies.It further isolates the administration of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who is accused of exacerbating the political, economic and humanitarian crises battering the Andean country. Rodriguez said she had not been notified in accordance with the rules of Mercosur and said Venezuela was the victim of "a coup at the heart of Mercosur.""An illegal Mercosur is being born," she said at a press conference in Caracas. Leaders of Mercosur, which also includes Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, gave Venezuela a Dec #United States #Business #Brazil #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Paraguay

Trump team considering new non-nuclear sanctions on Iran - FT | Reuters

WASHINGTON Donald Trump's transition team is examining proposals for new non-nuclear sanctions on Iran, the Financial Times reported on Friday, citing congressional sources who have been in contact with the president-elect's team.Officials with Trump's team have been in touch with fellow Republicans in Congress, where they hold the majority, to discuss possible sanctions separate from last year's Iran nuclear deal that could focus on its ballistic missile program or human rights, the sources told the FT.“They (Trump team members) are already looking closely at their options — and that very much includes non-nuclear sanctions,” a congressional official told the media outlet.The deal that was reached last year between Iran, the United States and five other world powers lifted some sanctions against Tehran in return for restrictions on its nuclear program. On the campaign trail, Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, vowed to tear up the agreement with Iran and negotiate a better one #United States #Obama #Business #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom

Brazil Senate boss Calheiros indicted for embezzlement | Reuters

By Lisandra Paraguassu | BRASILIA BRASILIA Brazil's Supreme Court indicted the president of the Senate, Renan Calheiros, on Thursday for embezzlement, a ruling that is expected to fan growing tensions between the judiciary and Congress over corruption cases.The top court voted 8-3 to try the senator charges of misusing public funds in a nine-year-old case involving the payment of child support for a daughter Calheiros had in an extramarital affair. Calheiros was indicted for billing the Senate for car rentals with false contracts. But the court dismissed charges he had falsified documents, including receipts for cow sales, to mask palimony payments prosecutors said came from an engineering firm.Renan, a key ally for President Michel Temer's drive to restore fiscal discipline and pull Brazil from recession, faces 11 investigations for corruption, eight of them for what prosecutors describe as kickbacks in the massive graft scandal centred on state-run oil company Petróleo Brasileiro S.A., known as Petrobras (PETR4.SA) #United States #Business #Congress #science #Argentina #Entertainment #lifestyle
